Last week Zach and I had the opportunity to go home to Georgia to see Zach’s younger brother, Bo, get married. We were only able to stay for a few short days but we packed a few little vacation-y things in and a whole lot of fun during those days.
We feel so grateful that we are able to visit home, that we have jobs that provide the time and resources for us to be able to enjoy such things. It truly is a blessing and we most definitely don’t take it for granted.
Our trip started with us landing in Atlanta and we were quickly picked up by Hallie and Jeremy. They took us to meet up for lunch with Kassie, Boi, Zach’s parents, and Bo. We all had lunch at the Dwarf House and then Hallie, Jeremy, Zach, and I headed to the Atlanta temple before calling it a night. The night had just begun by the time we got home, though. I should have known the game playing would start immediately.
Zach left with a bunch of the boys to go bowling for Bo’s Bachelor party and I went home with everyone and we all played one of the best versions of The Game of Things EVER…I guessed both of Zach’s grandparents’ submissions and it made me proud. I was sad that Zach missed out on the fun but we started in again the next night.
Saturday was the wedding day. We started out our day with a full family breakfast at Waffle House (that was the first thing I did when I visited Georgia for the first time…immediately upon landing we were taken to the Waffle House– actually it was in Alabama). I had a big fat breakfast and it was delicious. We had an amazing server which made the experience even more fun and genuine.
We got ready, went to the wedding, I did a lot of dancing…Zach did a lot of playing Horseshoes and Bean Bag Toss. We both did a lot of eating as dinner was catered by Hog Heaven (*sigh*). We cleaned up went home and played some more.
Sunday we joined Hallie and Jeremy for church and came home to just relax. We had spaghetti (with Warrunnuci sauce–to. die. for). We had a big lunch and I ate a good amount of it…so I went outside to the literal woods in the backyard (I kid you not…tall TALL trees) just enough breeze, perfect day and napped. I napped in a little swing for a bit before joining the family for some Geo Cacheing nerdiness. We went on some walking trails in the woods and on a path and found two caches. Admittedly, it was a little fun…as long as I didn’t have to navigate.
